32 Bit and 64 Bit LSP

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

Do not blink!  The popularity of 64 bit operating systems is growing every day.  If you want to install your LSP onto a 64 bit operating system, you will need for your LSP to be 64 bit too.

32 bit applications load the 32 bit DLLs and also the 32 bit LSP when they are run on a 64 bit operating system.  So you are still going to need to install the 32 bit LSP first.

Of course, when you then run a 64 bit application, it is going to load the 64 bit DLLS.  Therefore you will certainly need to have the 64 bit LSP installed as well.

Both of the LSP stacks (32 and 64) will be kept by your 64 bit operating system.  There will also need to be an installer for both versions too.  It is important to note that when you do install these, you must first install the 32 bit LSP and then the 64 bit LSP.
